Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Hos Gud er idel glæde

Hos Gud er idel glæde

Representative Text

1 Hos Gud er idel Glæde,
Men før jeg kommer der,
Jeg sukke maa og græde
Og gaa nedbøiet her;
Her trykker mange Plager,
Her strider Jesu Brud,
Her blandes Fryd med Klager,
Kun Glæden er hos Gud.

2 De Fromme have Sorger,
Naar Verdens Daarer ler,
En værdig Himlens Borger
Hver Dag sin Møie ser,
Og kjæmvende sig nærmer
Til Glædens faste Borg,
Dog Naaden ham beskjærmer,
Og let han bær sin Sorg.

3 Jeg bytter ei med Daarer,
Som have Glæden her,
Jeg heller mellem Taarer
Og Sukke Sæden bær;
Naar jeg med Fryd kan høste
Ved Enden af min Vei,
Lad Daaren sig forlyste,
Med ham jeg bytter ei.

4 Jeg Jesus skal beskue,
Det er mit Haabes Grund,
Lad Korset underkue,
Det er en liden Stund;
Snart Intet mig bedrøver,
Snart ingen Modgang mer
Min Glæde mig berøver,
Snart jeg min Jesus ser.
